To boldly go where no one has gone before. Hanelle Culpepper, who has worked on Star Trek: Discovery, will direct the first two episodes while Stewart's old TNG cast mate Jonathan Frakes will also call the shots during the first run.

Looking to chronicle a later chapter of Picard's life (roughly 20 years after the events of Star Trek: The Next Generation), the actual story cooked up by executive producer Alex Kurtzman and his fellow writers (Akiva Goldsman, Heather Kadin and Michael Chabon among them) is being kept under wraps.

However, as Trevor pointed out earlier this week if there is one new series that has people excited it's the return of Patrick Stewart in his iconic Star Trek: The Next Generation role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard in a new series that is to be aired on Amazon.

Streaming service CBS All Access unveiled the name and a fresh logo for the series during upfronts week, a time when networks woo advertisers with presentations for upcoming shows.

The show will be officially titled Star Trek: Picard, which is about as on-the-nose a title you could ask for, but there you go.

Check out the reveal of the official title and logo below.

We still don't much more about the plot other than that it also concerns the aftermath of the destruction of the planet Romulus, which we saw happen in the Prime timeline in J.J. Abrams' 2009 Star Trek feature film reboot.
